Islamabad, July 23, IRNA
Pakistan President General Pervez Musharraf and Prime Minister Shuakat Aziz have strongly condemned three bomb blasts in Egyptian city of Sharm-el Sheikh which have claimed 83 lives and expressed deep grief over the loss of lives of people.

In their separate messages to Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak on Saturday, they flayed the terrorist attacks at Sharm-el Sheikh and condoled with bereaved families.

President Musharraf said that Pakistan condemns the terrorism bid in Egypt adding terrorists have no religion and country.

"Terrorists are posing serious threat to world peace by targeting innocent people", he added, "Terrorists had no concern with Islam, as Muslim countries would have to formulate joint strategy to smoke them out".

Also the Pakistani Premier Shaukat Aziz said that government and people of Pakistan equally share the grief of the bereaved families of Egypt over the loss of lives in deadly explosions.

He said that Pakistan would boost cooperation with Egyptian government to eradicate terrorism.

Earlier Pakistan Foreign Office strongly condemned the terrorist attacks in Red Sea resort of Sharm el- Sheikh, Egypt which caused death of over 50 people.

"We also express sympathies with the brotherly government and people of Egypt and with the families of victims," a statement said.
